Take new Holland herring, remove the heads and scales, wash well, open
them and take out the milch and lay the herring and milch in milk or
water over night. Next day lay the herring in a stone jar with alternate
layers of onions cut up, also lemon cut in slices, a few cloves, whole
peppers and a few bay leaves, some capers and whole mustard seed. Take
the milch and rub it through a hair sieve, the more of them you have the
better for the sauce; stir in a spoon of brown sugar and vinegar and
pour it over the herring.
